Texas is definitely Red and orange!

Standard

It’s July, it’s HOT, it’s red, orange and all shades thereof! Been reading a lot about color lately. I know I learned some of this in my “very younger” years but my senior moments are more like hours and days now.

There are some really terrific color wheels out now but the simplest was from a painter, Johannes Iffel of Germany, living in the early 1900’s. it’s so simple that it even resonates with me. Apparently he was the first to assign “feelings” to colors. Interesting trivia!

20130702-154720.jpg. The colors in the center are the PRIMARY colors. They are clear and true and can not be mixed from any other colors. The colors surrounding the center are Secondary colors, mixed from combing two of the primary colors. (Yellow plus blue equals green). The colors on the outside ring illustrate “hyphenated” colors (yellow-green) or, more scientifically Tertiary colors in between the primary and secondary colors Ok…got that! Back to reading and learning about color.

Just finished a neat, fun quilt with some freehand playing. Quilt belongs to Debbie and I think she will like it. It was very Spring/Summery and I wanted it to be light hearted! I like the casual outcome!
